Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Differentiate betwteen a mp3 at 320 and a flac?

I agree totally DH Monte besides If the music was produced for that signal (Mp3) then take a hammer and smash it as small as u want put it in an iphone or mp3 player and carry it to the monn if you want just don't expect that the music will sound as it was produced . I'm no scientist (or scientoligist) but I know because I can hear the differene. Sometimes not in a single note but in a chord or drum track, that sparkle is definetlly missing.
I'm guilty of replaceing a music file into my libary in mp3 it saves space but I dont treat it the same as my recordings that have their musical integrity. I've dl'ed mp3 shows from the net even shows called soundboards but I'm not niave enough to think that was the way the Dead archived their music. I can't speak about rec'ing a show in mp3 and having a realistic facsmile of what was produced, If I was to lay a wager I'd place agianst the mp3 (am I a Loser).
My mp3's are treated as an audio reference for that paticular show. But if I want to count my ACTUAL shows that of course would only be Lossless.
I'm probably speaking arse but we believe what we believe
